It will be "Sleepless in Seattle" for sure for the Lions; lets hope it does not turn into a nightmare. On Paper the Lions match-up poorly against the Seahawks.
The last two games the Lions have played lights-out in the first half, only to not show up in the second half. It was Dallas 21 & Detroit 21 in the first game, followed by Detroit 14 & Green Bay 10 in the second game, both at the half.
The Dallas game ended, 42-21, as Detroit failed to score in the second half. The Green Bay game ended, 31-24, as Detroit scored a garbage time touchdown with 13 seconds remaining, and a field goal in the second half.
The Lions will need to play a full game and get two turnovers to win.
QB Russell Wilson scrambles more than Aaron Rodgers, who the Lions were unable to contain. The beat-up Packers secondary should have been easy picking for QB Matthew Stafford. The Lions run game looked good with RB Zach Zenner having a strong first half against Green Bay.
Seattle's secondary may be the best in the NFL. Their defensive line and LB crew are very good, so Matthew Stafford could be in for a long night trying to move the Lions offense.
Seattle's offense has been up and down all year, and their offensive line is far weaker then Green Bay's or Dallas', so there is hope for the Lions defense that they can get some turnovers and keep the Lions in the game.
Seattle plays the best at home, and they get the home field 3 points. If the Lions can get two turnovers, and turn them into points, they have a chance.
I don't look for a lot of points in this one which helps Detroit.
Seattle Seahawks - 16 Detroit Lions - 13
